Hey, @Owen29940644ype7. Welcome to the Lightroom Community. I'll help you figure this out.
This is as expected when you export as Original. An exact copy of the original image is sent out of Lightroom without any edits.
Lightroom adheres to non-destructive editing, i.e., no changes are applied to the source file. Edits & the work you do can be saved as a sidecar file to the original file in XMP format. You can use Export as DNG to embed the edits & metadata within a single file. Lightroom Classic and other Adobe products will read those settings from within XMP or DNG files.
